Feeling Blue with 13@rts

Hello friends! Hope you're having a nice warm weekend!

Today it's my turn on the blog to share a creation made from fabulous 13@rts products. Whenever I need inspiration, I look into my box and pick the colors that make me feel the happiest. For now, it's blue and I love the different shades of blue that you can find in the 13@rts store.

Here is my canvas, which is going to a very special friend.

My background is really simple with just one mask design which I applied modeling paste over. Then I misted with Pastel Blue and let the color run with a bit of water. When that is dry, I took a very old and frayed paintbrush and dabbed on Matte Paint in Cobalt Blue. Because of the shape of the bristles, I got a very beautiful effect from the brush strokes. Then it was finishing up with the Pearl Mist in Navy Blue using the same technique and running the color with water. So with just one single brush, I achieved both a water-color and "stamping brush" effect.

Now for close-ups:

My title chipboard from Blue Fern Studios was painted with Metallic Blue paint and I used my finger to dab on gesso randomly. 

Varying sizes of glass beads and microspheres for texture and patting on modeling paste to hold them together. 

Some alteration of the white flowers using the same mists and paints I used for my background.

That's all I have for you today. Have a great weekend!
